Twice the exploration. twice the opportunities.

The combined major in Anthropology and Psychology supplements the study of the human condition with the study of the human mind and behavior. Allowing students to specialize in two related fields, combined majors draw on the knowledge and opportunities afforded by two academic departments and fields of study. Students in our program gain access to hands-on participation in research in both departments, and small class sizes allow for direct contact with both departments’ faculty. In addition, the city of Indianapolis boasts a variety of local museums, service organizations, and more, providing access to internships, service learning, and research opportunities.
